It may have failed power supply for the backlights circuits due to bad caps, failed circuits in the backlights, worst case will be failed lamp assemblies.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed WESTINGHOUSE monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

My brightness control does not work just turned on and can not hardly see anything it is up and running what now


Have you tested it with an external monitor?

I would say you either have a damaged inverter board or screen baclight lamp. Usually the inverter board fails in one of the following ways:

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

Probably the backlight then. If you take a look on eBay you can probably get one for this screen and do the job yourself, they're relatively inexpensive.

LG L1717S has no light


Hi, this is a common problem. One thing you want to observe is that the screen works, what's going on is that the screen LCD illumination doesn't work while the screen display is active. LCD's have screen lamps behind the screen, they are often called CCFL, (Cold Cathode Flouroscent Lamps). The inverter board in the monitor supplies High Voltage power to the lampls, so the colored wires should lead you to the lamps. This is the problem causing the screen to dark. You can research the model lamp type for an accurate replacement. Usually there are 4 or 6 lamps in LCD Monitors.

MONITOR KEEPS SWITCHING TO STANDBY


Either the power supply is going bad (power light will be orange or off when it goes dark) or the screen itself has the problem (inverter?). If the power button stays green but the screen goes dark, that'll be the problem.
